Do these bloom at the same time as other asian pears?
When do they ripen? Mine has grown pretty quick, but refuses to flower.
First week of September.
Thanks and again your pai lis look like the real deal. I compared the shape of your pai li with some Chinese videos and yours look authentic and your taste report pretty much confirmed it. I should have eaten plenty of pai li when I lived in Beijing many decades ago. Both the scions I got from USDA and cricket hill grew very vigorously but the fruits were very gritty and the cores were disproportionately big. So now it’s likely we have 2 versions of Pai Li going around, one is true and the other one could be a mislabeled cousin of pai li.
